if anyone is interested i stumbled upon another case/holster combo on ebay

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Samsung-Gal...012608?pt=PDA_Accessories&hash=item3a6d5e7f00

if anyone has it or has tried it please post your comments...i am searching for a good case + holster combo that has the phone facing inwards (protected)...someone else wrote a bad review about this one..i may be the guinea pig and just purchase this one

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Protector-C...230535?pt=PDA_Accessories&hash=item4cfc3adcc7

i know that the seidio combo is coming out soon (hopefully) im trying to find an alternative so i dont have to spend $60 on that

UPDATE: my case arrived this afternoon

First, I must say...i was skeptical about the quality of the case and holster given that it was so cheap ($13) and that the previous case/holster combo, which was mentioned, was so poorly made...this one http://www.ebay.com/itm/BLACK-HARD-...511168?pt=PDA_Accessories&hash=item43ab2ab340 (a few people commented on this one and said it was really bad)...

the case and holster are both made out of hard shell rubber...the holster has a smooth felt piece that protects the phones screen when it inside...the belt clip swivels and comes out as a kick stand...i dont know how you are supposed to use the kickstand as the phone doesnt fit inside the holster with the screen facing out...so it guess they added that feature just to say they have it? because you cannot use it at all...the case fits snugly into the holster and comes out/in very easily (and yet wont every pop out on its own, which is nice)...the 1 draw back of the case is that it offers ABSOLUTELY no protection for the screen whatsoever..if you were to drop your phone screen side down it is about as well protected as not even having a case on it at all...my TPU case has a slight bump in the front which prevents the phones screen from touching the surface (table, ground etc..)...this case DOES NOT...overall though, for the quality and price of the combo my opinion is that it is quite solid

also, if anyone has an old case...there is a chance that it might fit into the holster..i have this one...http://www.ebay.com/itm/BLACK-S-LIN...?pt=PDA_Accessories&hash=item4ab072b78b...and it fits however it is not a 100% match so it does move around very slightly...i dont think it will pop out though...i've tried shaking it loose and it seems to stay in pretty well..

if anyone else has bought the case and knows how to utilize the kickstand properly please let me know...the workaround (which isnt very good) is to lay the phone on bottom plastic clip in widescreen mode...i guess you can use it that way if you must...

anyway....for $13 it is worth the purchase if you are looking for a cheap case/holster combo

just so theres no confusion, this is the EXACT one that i bought

The first one looks nice. I was about to buy the one in the 2nd link but another member bought it and said the fitment was horrible and looked cheap from what I remember. I started a thread about the same holster combo.

alright..thanks for the response...i just bought it as well...should get it sometime next week...i just realized there is no protection on the top or bottom? the rubber case seems to only cover the sides? should i be concerned about that?
